Looking for background on XPCOM_CORE.DLL

2 posts in this topic

Firefox 2.0.0.20 decided to crash on me today, and threw up this error:

Firefox caused an invalid page fault in module XPCOM_CORE.DLL

I didn't even know there was such a DLL. I searched my system and found 3 different versions of it. Strange info in the file-properties:

Version "Personal" 2/19/2008

Version 1.8.1.20: 2008121709 12/17/2008 (probably the one I was using)

Version 1.8.1.22pre: 2009041504 4/15/2009

Copyright: License: MPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1. Company name is either Netscape or Mozilla. No file description.

Just a fluke, or is there a better (more stable) version somewhere?

I use Firefox 2.0.0.20, too. In my Faultlog.txt file I see:

I don't know the cause(s), but it might be when I occasionally run out of virtual memory (swap drive gets full).
